Welcome to Discovery Times Square (Discovery TS) where extraordinary exhibits and unforgettable experiences come to life in our exciting, vibrant space for entertainment, learning and adventure.New York has always been something of a stage - a showcase for debuts and second acts. And so it is fitting that in the vast space that once housed The New York Times printing presses, Discovery Times Square now offers headlines of a different, but equally compelling sort.From the icy waters of the Titanic's final resting place to genius mind of Da Vinci and the riches of King Tut, Discovery is proud to celebrate the world with the world class exhibits of the new Discovery Times Square.Discovery TS also features two exclusive retail experiences — The Discovery Store featuring the latest in games, dvds and other products from the #1 nonfiction company in the world, Discovery Channel, and The New York Times Store with a wide range of exclusive items perfect for the newspaper enthusiast or history buff.

The star wars costume exhibit is great, totally worth it. Go early to avoid big crowds, I went at 10 am and the place was almost empty. By the time I left line to enter was starting to build. It is great to see the costumes so up close and to learn about their inspiration

we saw 2 0f 3 displays as we'd seed Bodies previously. The Star Wars costume exhibit was terrific and the Viking exhibit was very interesting also. It was cool which was nice on a hot day; unlike Madame Tussaud's.

This was a fantastic display of costumes from the starwars movies. Brilliantly placed and easy to see and photograph. They also had seating within the exhibit so you could take it all in. Staff were friendly and helpful.

My daughter and I enjoyed our day trip to see the authentic costumes found in the Star Wars movies. The attraction was small but impressive and will satisfy all true Star Wars fans. All costumes have detailed information, pictures and some video shots from the set.

This attraction is affiliated with Discovery Channel. It was included in the NY pass so we did not have to pay the ticket window. The exhibits being offered were Star Wars, Vikings and Bodies. My husband was excited since he had always wanted to the Bodies exhibit. My daughter and I really wanted to see the Hunger Games . It... More

The museum wasn't cheap, but we got a discount for having metro tickets. The exhibits are a lot of reading, some were reconstructions and replicas, but if you are interested in the topic it will give you a good understanding.

I had three hours to kill waiting for friends attending a Broadway show. On a whim I decided to see the Body Worlds Exhibition. How many ways can you show a pickled human body stripped of skin and fat? Evidently about 25, by I have to tell you that I was pretty underwhelmed by everything after the first two. Save... More

We visited the Star Wars exhibition which was very good. We had " jump the queue " passes with the New York pass but it wasn't busy anyway. The exhibition was great for any Star Wars enthusiast and good for the rest of us. Didn't realise there was so many costumes

After seeing the big adds on visiting an exhibition of Star Wars, my daugheter and I were very excited. After paying USD 128, we saw just a few original costumes and many many other costumes just related with Star wars. It is not worthed in our oppinion.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
